According to ESPN, the Seattle Mariners and starting pitcher Felix Hernandez have agreed to terms on a multi-year contract extension that will keep the right-hander in a Mariners uniform beyond 2011.
Terms of the deal have not yet been announced, but the extension will undoubtedly cover Hernandez’s final two arbitration years (2010 and 2011) under his current contract.
On a side note, this is the best news of the offseason so far for the M’s, with all due respect to Chone Figgins, Milton Bradley, Cliff Lee, and the rest of the signees, of course.
More details on this story as they become available. For now, praise Jackie Z!
